An American Carol (2008)
Critic Consensus: An American Carol suffers not so much from its perceived political bias, but from the fact that it simply is not very funny.

News & Interviews for An American Carol
Critic Reviews for An American Carol
Utterly asinine, sophomoric, tasteless, the movie has much in common with Zucker's Airplane!, The Naked Gun 2 1/2 and Scary Movie sequels, minus the laughs.
As entertainment, An American Carol ranks below YouTube clips of Sarah Palin.
Poorly made indie production has a script that feels like a list of ripostes collected over the last several years to liberal criticisms of the U.S.: The whole enterprise feels far more agenda- than entertainment-driven.
It's a polemic, a screed, a combination comic rant and sentimental flag-waver that doesn't work as either.
What makes An American Carol overtly depressing rather than merely lame is its allegiance to a diseased political discourse built on crude dichotomies: Either you're a bellicose, God-fearing patriot or a troop-hating, traitorous hippie.
Audience Reviews for An American Carol
I thought this was a really funny movie, why all the criticism?
Mildly funny. Not awful, but not that good either. As far as the message goes, it's as ridiculous as, well, one of Michael Moore's movies.
ZuckNuckle my Man!
